For over 25 years Suwage has created self-portraits to interrogate his own subject position in relation to his immediate social context. The artist has stated that making a self-portrait is a means to undergo self-criticism and that one should always practice criticizing oneself before others. In this sense, Agus Suwage’s work gives vivid form to the intersection of national identity, politics, society, and an individual’s expression leading us into complex psychological spaces.
